Yes, for the most part residential is easier. I am about 10% farm/30% commercial/60% residential so far this year. Yes, commercial is more profitable.do you think going for the residential is easier? .....................also you being a CG appraiser, how much of your work is commercial and how much is residential? ............I am guessing people go for CG appraiser because the commercial work is more profitable?...

I remember a stay-at-home mom came into my office unannounced and she wanted to talk about becoming a trainee and doing commercial appraising part time. I tried asking her what appeals to her about doing commercial work more and she couldn't give a good answer. Obviously, someone advised her to go for her CG based on commercial being more profitable, as you say. Needless to say, she's not working with me and I haven't heard about her from anyone else since.I am guessing people go for CG appraiser because the commercial work is more profitable?
